Almost certainly the motor capacitor is blown. Normally it is a 16micr Farad. value. Dont continue trying to use the machine until replaced.

My Bosch next 300 washer doesn't spin as fast as it did. It leaves the clothes wet and some water in the drum. No error code comes up? How do we fix it?


If the tub still moves but it's just not spinning that fast (and the water is draining out), then that means your motor control board has just started to fail and it will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue. If you pull the washer out and remove the back panel, there is a control board mounted to the floor under the tub. This is the motor control board and it will need to be ordered and replaced to fix the issue.

Did they add a fuse and fuse holder to the pump motor wiring? If not it may have blown the 6.3 A fuse on the motor control board as mine did before I replaced the pump... Did you replace the pump yourself or had a service man do it? If you had someone replace the pump, a return warranty servicve call is in order. If you replaced it yourself you may need a motor control board...$135 + shipping.. Arggh!

What is error code F11 on a Kenmore washer


F11 is a Serial Communication error.

Communication between the main board and the motor control board is not being sent correctly. This could be a bad main board, motor control board or motor itself. The testing can get pretty involved. Try putting the machine in a self test mode and see if the error clears.
Press Cancell, then by pressing the drain spin button once on the left side then move to the spin speed button the the right.
Press this button until no-spin lights.
Press the prewash button 4 times. C00 should appear in the display.
Let it run it's tests, there will be 8 of them and end up on C08.

If this doesn't work, it's best you wait for the service tech.

Keep us updated.

Drum not spinning or draining. Making a sound like something is trying to run but cant.


Check the power. If your Kenmore washing machine does not operate at all, you may need to replace defective or blown fuses or reset a tripped circuit breaker. This is done by moving the lever to the "Off" position and back to "On."
  • Examine the lid switch to see if it is defective. A malfunctioning switch can prevent the machine from operating or spinning. The switch can be found on the inside close to the door frame. Some models also have a special "lid-switch" fuse close by the lid switch within the control panel. A blown fuse will not allow the washer to fill with water.
  • Unclog the drain line if the machine is spinning but not pumping out water. If the problem still isn't fixed, the pump may need replacing.
  • Look for a broken pump belt or frozen water pump pulley if the machine does not spin or pump water. Test the pulley by disengaging it from the appliance and physically turning it. It should rotate freely.
  • Determine if the motor coupler or belts are broken, which could prevent the washer from spinning. Failure to spin also could be the result of a worn clutch, a malfunctioning drive motor, an improperly shifting transmission or a worn or "seized" spin bearing or basket drive. These problems also could keep a washing machine from agitating.
  • Find the source of a leak by checking the washer's air gap, inlet spout and rubber tube. Replace any items that are cracked, worn, deformed or disengaged.
  • Test the motor coupler, water-inlet valves and the drain hoses if your clothes are wet following the spin cycle. Replace these parts as needed.

  • Hope this might help u out!

    Where is the fuse located at


    if the pump is making noise the thermal limiter is ok, there is no fuse as such, most likely the motor speed control circuit board has burned out, it is a known defect in this washer.

    Maytag Neptune washer model #MAH4000AWW, Press start botton starts filling then shuts off after a few seconds. Move to spin it begins draining then shuts off after a few seconds


    Check out your motor control board near the floor on the right side. These have a high failure rate on the Neptunes. Maytag redesigned both the motor and motor control board to be more reliable. While inspecting this board, you are looking for a blown 10 amp fuse and /or burnt components. If you have either... then you will need the the new motor conversion kit which includes the motor, motor control board and the wire harness.

    These kits are offered on the www.neptunewaxmotor.com order form and they ship UPS Ground.

    This kit takes about an hour to install.


    Don't forget to see the info on the website regarding the defective door latch wax motor that will eventually fail and damage your machine control board.
